It’s been widely speculated that Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia De Rossi are expecting their first child together. 

And instead of shying away, the couple decided to sit down and address the rumours head-on.

Portia, 41, made a special appearance on her wife’s chat show Ellen, and was more than happy to answer questions sent in by viewers, the first asking whether the couple are having a baby or not.

Portia replied “It would be so fun for everybody if we were.”

“There’s a magazine cover.” she continued. “Did you see, it says ‘They’re FINALLY starting a family!’ Like are people really that mad at us?”

“We’ve waited way too long,” Ellen responded.

Portia then put the rumours to bed, telling the audience that the couple do not have a baby on the way.

“Good for me to know now,” Ellen joked.

See the rest of the interview below:

Did people ask you when you were going to have a baby?

  • Some people need to mind their business, it isn’t that easy for everyone.


  • Leave them alone, they are human too and have the right to love who you love, hope they have kids i fully support them, love your show ellen, and Portia your Just so beautiful ohh you to ellen lol sandra brown Australia


  • i like ellen and portia. i loved it when they got married


  • No I never got asked at all :)


  • Im glad they dont feel pressured to have kids,
    it would be great either way
    love them both


  • they did even though we had children in our early 20’s I think as soon as you get married people expect it straight away


  • Nice touch addressing the topic on Ellen’s own show.


  • People at our wedding reception were eager and asking us when to expect a baby!! Argh


  • Ellen really looks at Portia with such love in her eyes!


  • Ellen and Portia would make great parents, however it is a big commitment, their choice either way

    • Agreed, they would be so good, but their decision & they seem very happy together.


  • Yes people are nosey but on the other hand I think its a natural thing to ask especially when you see a happy couple who you think would make great parents. Historically isn’t that what relationships/marriage is about….procreation?


  • I don’t think they want a baby.


  • I keep seeing rumours that they’ve broken up. Why does media make things up?


  • Portia seems to have lost her Australian accent for an Amnerican one. I guess she has lived there so long now.


  • A shame they aren’t having a baby, they would be such nice parents.

    I tell you, I got so sick of everyone asking us if we were having kids that in the end we told them that we couldn’t. It did stop the questions for a couple of years.
